Real Hunting Means Facing the Possiblity of Coming Home with Empty Hands


I was on the hunt this afternoon. Nothing too dangerous. Just a stop at the antique mall. I found a beat up but functioning Royal Safari, a 1970s standard Royal with a missing carriage return lever, a bent Olivetti Studio 44, and this Olympia Traveller. I would have bought the Traveller if it were in better condition and at a lower price. The draw band was connected, but the carriage wouldn’t advance to the right. The left side panel was missing a screw. It was dirty as hell. June 23rd is International Typewriter Day, which also happens to be my birthday. I bought some beer instead.
